Phrase that was commonly used by Idahoans in the late 1970's to refer to the Californians that were ascending on Idaho. Neither the practice nor the term will likely come back into vogue as there are now more Californians in Idaho - look at Coeurdifornia for instance - than there are Idahoans. Gut-shooting may not be legal, but many of them off themselves when they become fatalities on the Goat Trail, Idaho's Highway 95 and one of the nation's 9 deadliest highways.
In the 1970's, "Gut Shoot 'Em at the Border" bumper stickers were common on Idahoans vehicles.
